Imagine what I'm up against! The thread not only sends me scrambling to keep up, it also requires that I break my silence!normal_smile%20.gif

Not sure how to feel bout that single from new National. It's different I suppose. I liked High Violet more than Boxer, so I'm expecting good things from it. National albums are always slow burners for me anyhow. Lookin forward to Bosnian Rainbows in June as well.

Do you guys ever change to closed headphones because it starts getting cold?

that's a good question. Yup. Helps me sweat it up and keep warm some times. Ear muffs.

Yup. I'm pretty much using IEMs exclusively now it's warmer.

For all the Fitear fans (there are a few here I think), I translated a post from a friend on a French forum who listened to the whole lineup more or less:

No, you pretty much are.

 

No worries, I got your back.  Though it does get a little hairy when they start asking specific questions about gear I haven't heard.  Hey Mupps, if you every get hideously bored, you should check out the recommendation threads.  Many a head-fier could benefit from your experience, TwinQY and I both think so.

This extents to everyone and anyone really. Any bit helps.

Muppet would be the most epic out of the lot though, for sure.

 

Still do not know WTF that is... a good thing maybe?

The Tsundere or the JATPS part?

More than a few I would think wink.gif

C435:
Fitear's former flagship before the introduction of the 335. They have 5 drivers in a 4 way configuration (nothing much ;) ): 1 low, 2 mids, 1 high mid and 1 high. Once again we find ourselves listening to stratospherical technical performances at the level of the Monet or 335. The C435 has tighter bass and a dryer tone and might be the most analytical of the 3  (analytical in terms of presentation, not performing better. All 3 perform at comparable levels). The highs are slightly less natural than on the 335 and Monet, and the sound is overall less fun, so I slightly preferred the other two models.

Ahhh, sounds delicious.

I ask  myself the same question. I thought BAs cannot flex?

My SM64's officially arrived this morning folks.

 

 

I listened to them a little between work using my UHA-6S MKII and like what I heard. Currently I have them playing tunes with my CLAS rig. They're not the most sensitive IEM's on the market and I had to turn the volume knob on the Leckerton over 3/4's of the way to get the music where I liked it. I also tried them on the HO of my Classic and iPhone and although they were able to drive the SM64 to an acceptable loud level the music sounded quite sloppy. These definitely need a decent amp if you want them to sound their best. On the plus side, because they're not that sensitive when I paired them to my CLAS setup the annoying hiss I get with other gear is gone. I'm getting a nice inky black background. Another thing I'm noticing, these things seem to really scale up. They sounded very good on my Classic/UHA-6S MKII setup and sound even better on my CLAS/RX MKIII-B rig. Something else to note, both setups seem to highlight different sonic attributes on this IEM for the better. In a few days, after I've become more acclimated to the sound, I'm going to try pairing the Leckerton with the CLAS and see what happens. Who knows, maybe I'll find a sweet spot for these.

 

Sound wise, I like what I hear but these are going to take some getting used to. These things seem to have a type of bassy signature I'm not used to. The crazy thing is although I have what can be termed bassy headphones I've never heard bass like this before, yeah I know I'm such a noob. Although the bass seems warm and lush it's incredibly controlled and detailed with a nice touch of reverb in the mid bass area. The closest I've come to hearing bass like this would be my sold off DT1350. Even so the DT1350 bass was nowhere as lush as the SM64 nor could it slam anywhere near as hard as the SM64 nor was there reverb in the mid bass. Mids seem to have a nice warm and rather smooth sound. Usually when I hear warm smooth sounding mids I think veiled but with the SM64 that's far from whats happening. The mids sound quite clear and clean which is throwing me for a loop as to how this thing can sound so clear yet be this warm. I'm not going to mention anything about the highs yet. I've yet to throw any music at this IEM to test it's highs or it's soundstage so stay tuned as far as the highs are concerned. I will say though, the soundstage sounds wide but depth seems a little lacking here and there. I'm still getting a nice layered presentation of coarse but depth on this IEM seems smaller when compared to it's width.

 

I like what I hear but this sig is going to take some getting used to. I think in the next couple of weeks, after I've had a chance to experiment with gear, I'll take some notes and put it against a shootout with my W4 and K2 sp and report back.

 

So, do my findings sound on par with anyone else whose heard these IEM's?


 

If the following is true all I can say is suuuweeetttt

Okay, so I'm not being all lazy and apathetic then?

Hmm, I don't think so... at least not this time of year.  BTW, photos of Christmas in Australia crack me up.  biggrin.gif

Dammit, just when I thought I was starting to fit in...

Yup, I can imagine some of the responses she'd get too... "Um thanks, but I don't think you understand what I want.  I asked for in ears, not out of head."  Annnnddd... facepalm.

The JATPS part.  I mean, I know what it stands for and all... but I don't know what that thing is.  Or why it's important.  Or is it?
